Dynamic TabbedMdiContainer

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 18 years ago by Thierry Bouchard

I am trying to implement the functionalities available in the context menu of a tabbed mdi window (Close/New horizontal group/New vertical group/Move to next group/Move to previous group) because I want to add more stuff to the menu, but since the menu is not available for modification, I can't simply add menus, but rather have to reimplement the whole thing, and I have some problems.

I tried to create a TabbedMdiContainer dynamically, add controls to it, etc. but I am missing something, since it doesnt work. Could you please enlighten me a little more on how to do it?

Hi Thierry,

We have some events off DockManager that let you intercept and cancel our menus so you can create your own. We also have helper methods on the tool window and document window classes to tell you the various states that the menu items should have are.
